A striking salvia with tall stalks of lemon flowers up to 3 meters. Salvia madrensis definitely has that wow factor on mass. Plants flower late in the season from very late summer/ autumn. Plants are tender so will do best with some protection from trees and some sun on their flowers. In a sheltered position it will flower through winter. Cutting plants back in late winter early spring will encourage them to bush up and help to support the tall flower stems. This salvia is native to Mexico and is very attractive to bees and butterflies.
